Talk too of stuff happening at the National Students' Union.
Separately in the suburb of Halandri, a school is still occupied by the students, even after an attack by the far right.
in the center of Athens.
Of the 8 arrested in Saturday's demonstration, 5 are 'charged' with offences while being hooded/masked (very difficult to breathe otherwise, with all the air pollution). 2 more are 'charged' with lesser offences.
1 was released.
Of these people, some were caught hiding in a building, and two others were arrested miles away in central Athens, riding on a scooter!
They are being held in custody at least until Tuesday. Doubtless solidarity actions would be useful
Following was put out by some workers in the suburb of Nikaia yesterday.
Communique of Workers Association of city of Nikea about murder–detentions-occupatio (sic)
Nikea City Hall is occupied by anarchist groups from the afternoon of Saturday after a protest, for the death of the unfortunate Pakistani immigrant, that took place against the Police Station of Nikea.
The union of workers demand that the repression forces leave from the the boundaries of the historic City of Nikea. The occupation of the City Hall by the protesters is a political act, and the attempt to criminalize it is unacceptable and undemocratic.
The workers of Kokkinia [“red neighborhood”] disapprove strongly the attack of the repression forces against the demonstrators and the excessive use of chemical gasses in a densely populated area. The police state cannot intimidate protesters and workers.
We demand the immediate clarification of the case of the death of our fellow man immigrant. We call the Minister of Protection of Citizen to deal himself with this dark case and not attempt to conceal the tragic case.
The union of workers protests strongly against xenophobia and racism that far right wing centers and paracenters are trying to impose on the Greek society.
-THE REPRESSION FORCES NOT TO RAID THE NIKEA CITY HALL.
-IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL OF THE POLICE FORCES FROM THE BOUNDARIES OF THE CITY OF NIKEA.
-CLARIFICATION OF THE CASE OF THE DEATH OF THE PAKISTANI IMMIGRANT.
-DEMOCRATIZATION OF GREEK POLICE AND THE FIRING OF THE FAR RIGHT WING ELEMENTS THAT ARE LOCATED IN IT.
